Project Details


SUSTAIN – Sustainable Sanitation in Theory and Action is a interdisciplinary capacity building program aimed at strengthening postgraduate training in integrated sanitation management.

The program includes training of 4 PhD candidates and a minimum of 12 master students in integrated sanitation management at University of Dar es Salaam UDSM. It is the first PhD program focused on sanitation in Tanzania.

SUSTAIN departs from a sustainability science approach, which utilizes both critical and problem solving research frameworks in an attempt to generate actionable knowledge, taking into account both the environmental aspects inherent in the water and waste cycle and the differing societal values and political interests of service and resource users.
